Remove the outer skin, innermost part of the breadfruit and chop it into thin long pieces as shown in the picture below. Put them in a vessel containing salt water for about 5-10 mins.

Add rice flour/rice batter, asafoetida, cumin seeds, carom seeds, salt, chilly powder, in a vessel. Mix them well by adding sufficient amount of water. (Don't make the batter too thin.)
